Smart cookie Kiesza continues to impress with her lives performances, only the one we’re raving about this time around doesn’t involve her elaborately recreating her “Hideaway” dance routine outside a television studio space. The Canadian singer instead sat down with an acoustic guitar for NME‘s Basement Sessions series and turned out a moving rendition of Nirvana‘s In Utero classic “Heart Shaped Box.” In doing so, Kiesza proved that she’s not just a child of ’90s with an affinity for only house music, but rather for the entire array of sounds that influenced her while growing up.

Watch the singer pour her own emotions into Nirvana’s 1993 alt-rock staple above.
